Default Fuel Cap Lock

Are fuel cap locks available?
I own a Swift & like most other cars, the fuel cap door (tiny door) is released by a switch under the seat. And once you door is released, you
can unscrew the cap. I was wondering if I can replace the cap with some
new cap which comes with a separate key?

Something like this

Is something like this available for a swift?

Paranoia, basically :-)
Want to prevent theft by people who have access to my car keys.

Has anyone seen anything like this in any car accessory shop?

You are an odd man out aren't you? Few people have asked here how to get a remote fuel lid installed, and here you are, wanting a manual lock for your fuel lid.

I guess most local garages would be able to fabricate one. Not sure if the MASS would be interested in fabrication though.
